Nick Hipa (ex-As I Lay Dying) & Ryan Glisan (ex-Allegaeon) launches new group MIRE; stream first single “Refined”

Originally formed in 2017, MIRE – comprised of guitarist Nick Hipa (ex-As I Lay Dying), guitarist Ryan Glisan (ex-Allegaeon), and vocalist Benton McKidden – has released a music video for their first single, “Refined”. You can get the track via the group’s Bandcamp. Hipa comments:

Very stoked to share some new music from my band MIRE. Ryan, Benton, and I started this journey together in 2017, with the simple desire to create stylistically unrestrained music based on mutual admiration for riff based songwriting.

Our first single ‘Refined‘ is out now. It’s a decently pummeling tune that represents just one facet of what we’ve created together. I really hope you dig it, and look forward to sharing more tunes in the near future.

Drums on the song were performed by Jesse Beahler. The song was produced by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio; with drums tracks by Matt Guglielmo at Graphic Nature. Mixing and mastering was handled by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.
